Noel and I have discovered a great excitement for sushi over the past couple of years. Sushi is one of those things that I never thought I'd desire to make. It just seemed too hard and if I'm going to eat it, I'd rather go out for it. Boy was I wrong! I was offered a free spot in the sushi class this week and convinced Noel that it would be a really fun date for us. Plus, then he'd be able to see where I spend so many of my evenings! So, we purchased a spot for him and made sushi together this past week. We both had a great time and hope to have a sushi party sometime! After the initial investment into the tools (which are quite cheap), it's really inexpensive to make your own. How fun!
What a fun night and a fun skill to learn together!

Anyway, this movie is FANTASTIC. We both really enjoyed it. I literally felt like I was watching myself on the screen with the "Julie" character (played by Amy Adams). Meryl Streep did an absolutely AMAZING job playing Julia Child. It was delightful, entertaining, funny, and even a little romantic at times. After the movie ended, Noel turned to me and said, "You are totally Julie". If only...However, it does make me even more excited to go back to school for nutrition/food service. The idea of being around something that I love so much and am so passionate about is so exciting! And to think that I'll even get paid to do it!
I think this movie would be enjoyed by anyone, even those who don't like to cook. Please check it out of you get a chance! I doubt you'll be disappointed!

Ned, Kevin, Carol, and Grandpa
The beautiful bride!
This dress was quite complicated! It took Mom and Emily quite a while to lace up the back. It was very beautiful and elegant.
Heidi putting on the final touches.
Noel and I after the ceremony.
The Snyder kids...the family is now complete (except future children, of course)!
We are so excited to have Brian in the family. Heidi and Brian are a perfect match and have so much fun together. We look forward to getting to know them more as a couple in the future. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe! And thanks for giving up your name, Heidi! For the first time, I am the only Heidi Snyder in the family.
I made a flourless chocolate cake for dessert (thanks to one of my cooking classes) that ended up being the birthday cake. Isn't Dad young?????
Josh and Kevin checking out Dad's new drill.
Noel was able to spend a morning visiting with Ryan at the Real Food Cafe in Alger Heights. He also got to stop by the Cox's house to see Ruby and Amber. I'm so sad to have missed them (I was visiting with a different friend), but our time was just so limited. Isn't Ruby the cutest?
Our travel to Michigan started with a 3 day stay in Colorado. We had a mini college reunion with 5 couples, the guys being the common bond (they all lived on 3rd floor Durfee at Hope). Luke's parents have a cabin in Buena Vista, which we were all able to stay at. It was beautiful and so much fun!
